Engineering and Technology courses develop and enhance students' technological literacy or understanding of how technological systems function and impact society, the environment, and the global economy. Engineering and Technology is activity based and includes topics related to invention, intervention, and innovation.
Project Lead the Way
The primary goal of PLTW is to grow the nation's technology workforce (engineers and technicians). Currently, 1,300,000 engineering/engineering technology jobs are available in the U.S. without trained people to fill them. The PLTW curriculum provides the kind of student work that helps students reach higher standards in the academic core.
